Vectra
The World Leader in Applying AI to Detect and Respond to Cyberattacks in Real Time


Vectra Congito - AI that reduces SOC workloads by 29X, enabling you to stop in-progress attacks.

Cognito is the award-winning threat detection and response platform from Vectra. It augments the hunt for cyberattackers, shows where they’re hiding and tells you what they’re doing. The highest-risk threats are instantly prioritized so security teams can respond faster to stop in-progress attacks and avert data loss – from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices. By automating the manual, time-consuming analysis of security events, Cognito condenses days or weeks of work into minutes and reduces the threat investigation workload by up to 29x.

Vectra Artificial Intelligence Products

Based on artificial intelligence, the Cognito automated threat detection and response platform features a flexible, scalable software architecture that ensures full visibility into cyberattack behaviors across enterprise networks. Regardless of size or geographic spread, this distributed architecture provides unified threat detection coverage of all network traffic, from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices.

This distributed architecture enables customers to deploy X-series appliances as a centralized Brain. A combination of physical S-series sensors and vSensors are deployed across multiple locations to collect and deliver information to the Brain for centralized analysis, detection and correlation of threats.

S-series sensors are easily deployed at remote sites or at access switches on internal network segments to extend the reach of Cognito deployments. Small, dedicated devices, S-series sensors passively monitor network traffic, extract critical metadata and forward it to the Brain for analysis and attack detection.

  • Four 10/100/1000BASE-T
  • A total of two ports can be used in passive mode
  • One 10/100/1000BASE-T out-of-band management port
  • One 10/100/1000 BASE-T out-of-band support port
  • One RJ-45 serial console port
  • 1 TB hard disk drive
Vectra X29 Appliance

Vectra X29 Appliance

Cognito runs on the X-series appliance, which can be deployed in three modes – Sensor, Brain or Mixed. In Sensor mode, the X-series ingests traffic, extracts metadata and forwards it to another Brain or Mixed-mode X-series for processing. In Brain mode, the X-series only receives metadata from one or more sensors. In Mixed mode, the X-series performs both Brain and Sensor functions.

  • Two 10/100/1000BASE-T
  • Two 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+
  • Two 10/100/1000BASE-T ports
  • One VGA video port
  • Two USB 2.0 ports
  • One DB-9 serial port
  • 9 TB hard disk drive

Virtual Sensors

Running in VMware ESXi 5.0 or later, vSensors make it easy to extend threat detection coverage across the physical network and into virtualized data centers. The vSensors can connect to any VMware vSwitch in the data center to provide visibility into all traffic and detect threats that pass between workloads in the virtual environment. Cognito also integrates with VMware vCenter for an authoritative, always up-to-date view of the virtual environment.
